Can always put in back to stock for while and enjoy the wind protection from full bodywork. When the holigan part of you comes back, tear it down for streetfighter duty. Like two bikes in one. That's if it's not all that much work!

Re: to plastic or not to plastic?.... this is the question

Re: to plastic or not to plastic?.... this is the question

another thing is when riding it hard, theres not always enough weight over the front end... due to the seating position, and at high speed, a cats eye make the frnt go like jelly...

..... gotta say it...

I agree with bucko, denzee....

I can't bring myself to fighter my blade, It would be sacralige..

..I've wanted a fighter for ages, but think, even if I didn't have the gixxer.. I couldn't do it to the blade .. I would have to buy a tatty/scrapped/damaged one...

..... Put it back to stock ( can't believe I've just said that) and find summut else to fighter.. (plenty of old models look good fightered) *

*sorry must go wash my own mouth out with soap! & will probley send myself to bed early with no tea too!!


As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground. As long as I fall, I'm safe & sound.
